Take away the cloud of mystery and tell a young black man the history
of his ancestors conquest and empires, and with that knowledge He knows he can conquer every one of his desires like the Asante empire
If you lie and tell him something like blacks are inferior, and in this world they have created nothing
he’ll educate you about the great kingdom of Timbuktu
When you tell him since two years after 1863 blacks have been free, yet they are still living in poverty
He’ll tell you that blacks had millionaires in black wallstreet when the great depression had whites living on the streets
and the only thing that was able to slow down the American negro was the FBI and Cointelpro, but Obama proved there’s nowhere a determined negro can’t go!
